The fallen leaves and colours are a giveaway that this footage was from the fall. I just got to putting together a little montage now. Stanley Park is fantastic. I always look forward to seeing the raccoons. Cute enough to feed, it's hard to resist the urge.
I met prehistoric-looking Iguana on a recent trip. Look at those lips! They look pretty moist compared to the rest of him. My skin gets dry and scaly this time of year too... from the cold though, not the heat as he faces everyday.
Patterns in nature make up very interesting exercises for the eyes. The gradation in colour here emulates a sunset, changing from yellow at the centre apex to red towards the bottom. Discover other cool photos along the same lines of patterns in flora at National Geographic.
Here's a close look at some bees busy on some pink flowers. Or perhaps it's the same bee who's extra busy on a number of flowers. Assuming the flower is as tasty to the bee as the sumptuous pink colour looks, it's no wonder the bees were crawling all over with delight.
I see stylized photos of flowers in stores and I think they're pretty cool. So why not take some real photos of my own and play around with them in photoshop to give a fabricated feel. An Andy Warhol-esque picture is in my future. Topic: Gerberas, of course!
A sample of some of the most beautiful roses in a natural setting that you'll ever see. Courtesy of the Stanley Park Rose Garden and a summer day. These are a Grandiflora variety of rose - tall growing and sturdy. Grand indeed!
Here's an interesting plant that looks rather vicious and painful if you were to reach out and grab it. The spiders don't seem to mind it though given the webbing covering parts of it. The spikes probably serve to trap lots of little critters for spider snacks.
Super trailing petunias, or Supertunias, are a fountain of colour throughout the summer. Here's a bright eyeful of a pink version. For you non-green thumbs out there these are low maintenance and easy to grow.
